From “Vive La France” to “Shame on France!”

Notes of a Spurkahye Finally Come Home

It seems Armenians have a tendency for premature celebrations. We also have a tendency to believe in people, always in others and never in ourselves. As such, we have a tendency to be heavily disappointed. All those “Vive La France” cries have turned to disgruntles murmurs. All the “Thank You France” mantras have turned to shame. The French flag is no longer proudly hoisted and the language has lost its luster again. We’re hurt, we’re sad and we have lost a bit more faith in humanity.

It’s a shame, really. Our weakness is our blind love for all those who smile at us, forgetting that those same will drive a knife through our backs. We refuse to believe the worst in people, always giving everyone another chance, a second a third, a tenth and hundredth.

Today, the world proved itself a hypocrite. Again. And again. And once more, again. As…

Google Translate , Seriously?

It was really weird  when you Google translated the Armenian sentence “I love Armenians” (“Ես սիրում եմ հայերին”) to English it translated “I love Turkey”  

Google Translate

 

Now who to blame Google or ?

and after the reactions of the international Armenian community Google corrected the translation and provided the correct translation …

Well Google should have some explanation on the subject because  me personally I don’t know how Google translate works and if this is a wrong translation then i am sure there is more as well regarding to topics sensitive like this one.me

meanwhile  this went viral in Turkey 

here are some links for Online magazines from Turkey talking about it 

 

 

 

Thanks for my friend Serouje for the provided photo and the links

 

Vartan Mamigonian

Vartan Mamigonian fougt and died for his Christian faith and belief and determined the fate of Armenia, here’s the story

Year451 AD. The year of the defeat of the Scourge of God, Atilla the Hun at the hands of the Romans. Place The plain of Avarayr, near the Biblical homeland of the Armenian people, Mount Ararat, the place where Noah landed in his mystical Ark. For already 150 years, Armenian was a Christian land. After the baptism of King Trdat by St Gregory the Illuminator, Armenia was able to take the title of the First Christian nation. A century and a half later, the Armenians are fighting for their very survival.
The cause was religious . Armenia had developed its own culture with great zeal and In this period, the Bible was translated into the Armenian language and Christianity flourished in the country. This period was known as the “Golden Age” of Armenian history, begun by Saint Mesrob Mashdots, who invented the Armenian alphabet

Armenians slowly drifted away from their Persian rulers. This slow loss of Persian influence in Armenian caused the Persian king to send a decree, stating that all of Armenian would be converted to Zoroastrianism.The Armenians, in a mass meeting of the clergy and ruling princes, gave a bold answer to this royal decree insisting that they had not the slightest intention of denying their Christian faith. The Persians countered this boldness with a heavy hand. They sent a huge army of some 220,000 strong to Armenia to crush the resistance and to convert the country to paganism by force.

In 451 A.D. on the field of Avarayr, near Mount Ararat, a band of 66,000 semi-trained and poorly equipped Armenian fighters, under the leadership of St. Vartan Mamigonian, Vartan and his comrades suffered a military defeat, dying to the man, but in reality the victory was theirs. They lost the battle but had not lost the war. In the end, they attained the aim for which they were fighting. The Persians eventually stopped their attempt to convert the country to their religion. They realized how steadfast Armenians were in their faith and convictions. The defeat of the of the brave Armenians became a moral victory. For their extreme faith, Vartan and his companion Hayr Ghevont were both canonized into the Armenian church.

Vartanants is one of the most popular feast days for Armenians. It is filled with both religious and nationalistic symbolisms of conscience, faith, and resolve to preserve identity and freedom of religion. It is commemorated each year on the Thursday prior to Poon Paregentan and the beginning of Lent.

I dedicate this blog post to my good friend Vartan who I guess would fight for Christian faith and for his love to Armenia and Armenians , Cheers 🙂
